Hello everyone...

I have a manual for a Lewyt canister on my manuals page. Can someone take a look and let me know what model it might be? And what year or range the manual is from.

Once you click the link it will take a couple minutes to load into your browser as it is a large (8 mb) file. It has the manual, plus a separate pamphlet for attachments, plus instructions for the sprayer, and lastly, an interesting survey Lewyt evidently sent out to purchasers.

Thanks in advance.

More manuals...

I also have a number of other manuals on my site...just for fun.

Anyone with any interest by all means take a look and download whatever you like.

If anyone has any manuals in pdf format I am happy to add them to the site.

1951 the 48/49 had the filter cone and were sued by filter queen, they then came out with the paper bag version

as to model, was called the *lewyt cleaner* until the *big wheel* came out

Hi Mark:

The manual is from a Lewyt Model 55 - made 1952 - 1954.

Lewyt must have been lacks, in their updating of copyright dates.

As they supposedly had issues with being sued themselves, for infringing; maybe they didn't give a rat's ass about updating theirs.

I was offering an 'guestimate' based on what's on page 18 of Mark's pdf link. Most companies keep their copyrights up to date, even though they may 'recycle' the literature itself.

No desire for a lot of knowledge on the 'others'; however, no one had assisted Mark by that time, so I threw a dart in the dark. ~~lol~~

Cheers & hagn all,

Hi Bill:

If you look at the Lewyt books they tended to recycle the information and pictures only updating the items that had changed. The sheets that you refered to were a 4 page leaflet that came with the sprayer and, to my knowledge, were not updated during the entire run of the Lewyt machines as all but the first one used the same sprayer (although it was optional on the later machines)
